Daz the Dazzling Giraffe: Giraffe of the Day

Sculpture Name: Daz the Dazzling Giraffe 

Artist Name: Bigg Design

Location: Newhaven

Sponsor Name: McIntosh of Strathmore

Designed by Bigg Design, this dazzlingly delightful creature named  Daz the Dazzling Giraffe plays with a giraffe’s familiar camouflage pattern, metamorphosing into a striking design that takes inspiration from diverse sources, including World War I dazzle ships, butterfly wings and 20th century avant-garde art.  

Bigg Design is passionate about improving our experience of the public realm by bringing a sense of joy, sustainability and beauty to it.

Sponsored by McIntosh of Strathmore, Daz the Dazzling Giraffe stands out from the herd with his bright colours and bold design and loves to strut his stuff.
